It’s not often a trailer manages to bomb so badly that the internet explodes, well that’s exactly what happened to the first trailer of Paul Feig’s version of Ghostbusters. It managed to rack up a staggering 808,000 thumbs DOWN on Youtube, more than double the thumbs up. Ouch. That’s gotta hurt. Frankly all I think it shows is how the internet is full of haters and reactionists. Give the movie a chance, people! Have a watch of this latest trailer that went up with very little pomp and ceremony…

Damn that actually looks fun! I think Feig dropped the ball with the humour in the first trailer, making it look way too slapstick when fans just want a decent Ghostbusters movie. I am rather keen to see this now, especially as Chris Hemsworth gets possessed, woot! Speaking to Empire Feig said this of the big bad and what to expect:

Rowan is the ultimate loner. [He’s] a regular New Yorker whose goal is to bring some things back to this world. He wants to trap ghosts, but for a different purpose…

And no, this loner isn’t played by our own Trevor, but by a Saturday Night Live regular, Neil Casey.

Ghostbusters stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones and will slime its way into cinemas on 15 July. Let’s hope that the damage the first trailer did is undone by then because I would really like to see this movie work. If not I’ll make my own with Trevor as the big bad.
